In hopes of spreading the word on local sustainability efforts, the 12th Annual Sustainable Buzz food and wine fundraiser is returning to the Straz Center of Performing Arts from 6:30-9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 13.

The event will be packed with local vendors using farm-fresh ingredients and serving up unlimited samples.

Attendees will also get unlimited sips of locally brewed craft beer, locally distilled spirits and organic wines. Local bands are on the lineup, really driving home the importance of buying and supporting local businesses in the Tampa Bay Area. The event is benefitting The Sustany Foundation, which promotes sustainability on a local level through education, investment, and culture.

General admission tickets go for $50 and include all food and drink samplings, along with access to entertainment. VIP tickets come in at $150, and get you in the door early, access to a VIP only reception and valet parking. The real deal seems to be buying a pair of VIP tickets for $125. Your math isn't wrong, it's just a steal.
